The tournament takes places right on the borders between Italy and Austria, in Piani di Luzza, within the municipality of Forni Avoltri. This is a lush and picturesque location, surrounded by the Dolomites and the Carnic Alps: definitely a magic setting where the delicate balance between man and nature has gracefully withstood the passage of time.

The convenience of having all football fields within less than 300mt from the accommodation facilities will allow the young footballers to concentrate on their matches and will let them also enjoy some spare time to play some other sports or make new friends: the numerous indoor and outdoor facilities will indeed encourage the social life during the tournament.

Made in #Forni di Sopra la miglior #birra artigianale d’Europa 2013

La miglior birra d’Europa?     La “Hot Night At The Village”

Il premio è appena stato vinto in Belgio al Crowne Plaz Hotel di Lìege nel contesto del Brussels Beer Challenge, dov’erano intervenuti oltre un migliaio di piccoli birrifici.

Nonostante il nome inglese, una birra carnica Doc, prodotta dal birrificio artigianale Foglie d’erba di Gino Perissutti che aromatizza i suoi prodotti con aghi di pino silvestre, pino mugo, frutti di bosco e tante altre sfumature di bosco, tanto da essere il primo birrificio al mondo certificato Pefc, l’associazione internazionale che promuove la gestione sostenibile delle foreste al fine di garantire al consumatore l’assoluto rispetto dell’ambiente.

Un’attenta e qualificata giuria internazionale ha giudicato la birra fornese degna di salire sul gradino più alto del podio con questa birra Stout/Porter con gradazione 5,5 venduta in bottiglia da litro a un prezzo fra 5 e 10 euro.

Solo un altro birrificio italiano, il Birrificio del Ducato, ha conquistato un altro primo posto con una Dark Ale: tutte le altre medaglie sono andate in Belgio, Stati Uniti d’America, Paesi Bassi, Francia e Regno Unito.

Foglie d’erba nella competizione si è portato a casa pure una medaglia d’argento e una di bronzo con altre due birre: l’argento per la Babel, il terzo posto alla birra A Freewheelin’ Ipa, due birre Pale& Amber Ale,English Ipa.

Birra_di_ForniGino, nominato Birraio dell’anno nel 2011, coltiva la passione della birra sin da piccolo, quando lavorava nell’hotel Coton di proprietà della famiglia, riuscendo nel 2008 a creare la sua birreria dopo un lungo girovagare per i templi della birra in Slovacchia, Germania, Belgio, Inghilterra. Necessita di nuovi spazi producendo 1.500 ettolitri.
